Natural Linen Sheets

Linen, which comes from the flax plant, is an optimal material for making sheets. Like hemp, linen does not require pesticides to grow. By contrast, 25% of all pesticides used in the world are sprayed on cotton. Linen is also 2 to 3 times stronger than cotton, has no lint or piling tendencies, and dries more quickly.

Who knew! Linen looks like a good alternative to cotton. Look for it next time when you are shopping for clothing or bed sheets.
